Samuel G. Chapman has served as a Berkeley Police Department, California police officer, a police consultant, an assistant professor in the School of Police Administration at Michigan State University, and as undersheriff of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office in Portland, Oregon. In 1965 he was named assistant director of President Johnson’s Commission on Law Enforcement Administration and Justice.

 

After the 1967 report Samuel Chapman was appointed professor of political science at the University of Oklahoma in the Police Administration Program, where he served for 24 years.  Samuel Chapman is an expert on police use of deadly force and the use of canine units.  Samuel G. Chapman is the author, co-author or editor of ten books: Police Dogs in North America; Cops, Killers and Staying Alive: The Murder of Police Officers in America; Police Patrol: Operations and Management; Police Administration: A Critical Study of Police Organizations in the United States and Abroad; Police Patrol Readings; An Analysis of Assaults on Police Officers in Forty-Six Cities; A Descriptive Profile of the Assault Incident; Dogs in Police Work in Oklahoma; Introduction and Methodology to the Study of Police Assaults in the South Central United States; Police Murders and Effective Countermeasures.

 

According to the description of Police Dogs in North America, “In 1953, there were zero canine programs on any American police force. In 1989, there were more than 2,000 programs with over 7,000 police handler dog teams. In 1953, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had the nation's only program with 20 teams but in 1989 there were 46 programs with 300 teams. These are dramatic program expansions. There have been controversial issues of using dogs; the pros and cons of using dogs for specialized functions are thoroughly analyzed in this book. Clearly identified are the elements to be assessed as a prelude to implementing a canine patrol unit, with the essential features critical to a unit's organization, operation, and ultimate success.”

 

According to the description of Murdered on Duty: The Killing of Police Officers in America, “From 1945 through 1994, over 3,300 American police officers have been murdered in the line of duty. For trainers, planners, decision-makers, administrators, supervisors, and even line officers who want to know what more can be done, Professor Chapman's new book, Murdered on Duty, is an excellent resource. In the first four chapters, Professor Chapman updates and expands his meticulous research on the nature of police murders, focusing primarily on a single state's experience, that of Oklahoma from 1950-1994, as reflective of the problem nationally. Chapman offers intriguing facts, reconstructive case histories that disclose the human stories behind the numbers, and presents critiques that reveal the sad truth that careless or complacent officers contribute to their own deaths in at least one of every two fatalities. In the concluding portion of his book, Professor Chapman carefully sets out a broad-based action agenda that could strikingly improve an officer's chances in the street...This section can be motivating for police administrators, city managers, citizen groups, researchers, and lawmakers looking to make contributions to the officer survival cause.”

About the Berkeley Police Department:

The City of Berkeley was incorporated in 1878. The City was policed by a elected town Marshal. In addition the Marshal was assisted by elected Constables. Through these years the Marshal and Constables mostly served papers and seldom arrested without a warrant. Crime increased through the turn of the century. In 1905, August Vollmer was elected town Marshal. In 1909, he was appointed as this City's first Chief of Police. Chief August  Vollmer was instrumental in organizing this department, creating what we now call a "Code of Ethics", which included eliminating the acceptance of gratuities, rewards or favors."   Chief August Vollmer demanded a high level of honesty, efficiency, interest and hard work by his officers. This has continued to this day, which has been the foundation for our world wide reputation in the law enforcement field.

 

Chief August Vollmer is considered by some as the father of modern day law enforcement. His progressive thinking and use of new innovations in law enforcement became the foundation that our department has built on. Some of the early innovations by Chief Vollmer and this department were: In 1906, the department installed a basic records system (One of the first in the United States); In 1906, installed the first Modus Operandi (MO) System; In 1907, first use of scientific investigation (Kelinschmidt case - analysis of blood, fibers and soil).; In 1907, the department's police school was established. It included instruction from professors on such subjects as the law and evidence procedures. This was the first school of its kind in the world and had a far reaching effect on law enforcement; In 1911, organized the first Police Motorcycle Patrol; In 1913, changed to automobiles for patrolling; In 1916, Chief Vollmer established the first School of Criminology at University of California, at Berkeley. Chief Vollmer became a strong advocate of college educated police officers; In 1918, began using intelligence tests in recruiting police officers; In 1920, the first lie detector instrument was developed at University of California and used by our department; In 1921, began using a psychiatric screening in recruitment; In 1923, the first Junior Traffic Police Program was established; In 1924, established one of the first single fingerprint systems; In 1925, established our first Crime Prevention Division and hired the first Police Woman.
